About shoulder chops

Did you know there are different cuts of pork chops? They all come from the pig's loin, which is at the top back of the animal, runs from the hip to the shoulder, and includes a tenderloin strip. One of these chops is the shoulder chop, which is sometimes sold as a pork blade chop.

The shoulder chops come from the pig's blade roast or shoulder, so it's closer to the pig's head. As a result, this chop has a little more fat and flavor. It's popular in the Midwest since it's commonly used in St. Louis barbecue dishes. Shoulder chops tend to have dark-colored meat and some blade bone.

FAQs About Shoulder Chops

You can keep shoulder chops in the refrigerator for up to five days. Make sure you place them on a platter or in a bowl at the bottom of the refrigerator. The pork needs to be stored at a temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit or less. For shoulder chops that you've already cooked, you can keep those in the refrigerator for up to three days.

To make the pork last longer, you can place it in the freezer. Use a paper towel to pat the chops dry to remove any extra moisture. This prevents the formation of ice crystals. Put the chops in a freezer-safe plastic bag or container and put it in the freezer. Frozen pork will keep for up to 12 months.

People believed that pork chops needed to be cooked until they're well-done or 160 degrees Fahrenheit for fear they would catch a foodborne illness. In 2011, the USDA updated its cooking recommendations and stated that the ideal internal temperature is 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Cooking the chops until they're well-done causes them to dry out, so it's best to stop cooking once they reach medium.
